THE restaurant in one of Weston's oldest buildings has made it on TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice list for the fifth year running.

The Old Thatched Cottage Restaurant can be found overlooking the seafront on Knightstone Road.

Originally built in 1791 as a holiday home for Reverend William Leeves, the building acts as Weston's sole surviving thatched house.

Rev. Leeves was a solider and a musician/composer, best known for his role in creating the song Auld Robin Gray.

The Grade II-listed building was acquired by Axentis Michael in 1959. It is owned and operated by the Michael family in present day.

Posting on Facebook, a spokesperson from the business said: "Every year, TripAdvisor celebrates restaurants that consistently deliver amazing experiences - and for the fifth year running we made the list!

"Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave us such wonderful reviews; as an independent, family-run business, awards and recognition like this really does mean the world to all of us!"
